Just received a sympathy card from my cousin Nancy Turner Burks in Dallas telling me that Uncle Bobby had passed. So sorry that I did not know before now and that I missed the service. Uncle Bobby played a significant role in the days of not only my life but also my son's. Aunt Sue, Mark, Paul, Don, and Renee, our thoughts and prayers are with you as we all celebrate his life and grieve the loss of his earthly presence. He is now with Grandma, Grandaddy, his brother and Michelle up in Heaven. And the legacy of his life will live on through each of you and yours as well as in all the lives that he influenced for good throughout his life-well-lived. Much love from your Seattle family, Peggy and Sidney
